Post-Concussion Syndrome

Put an end to post-concussion syndrome.

At Denver Upper Cervical Chiropractic, we treat post-concussion syndrome (PCS).

Almost 3 million Americans suffer a concussion every year. It’s estimated that 15% of those people experience prolonged symptoms. These persistent symptoms that last more than a few weeks means you have PCS.

More and more research is being published that supports upper cervical chiropractic care as the best treatment for after a concussion — either to treat or prevent PCS.

What is post-concussion syndrome?

Post-concussion syndrome can develop after you suffer a mild head injury. Normal concussion symptoms should resolve in a few weeks. You are considered to have PCS if your concussion symptoms last longer than 6 weeks.

Not only is PCS an issue in sports medicine — since concussions are common in contact sports — but anyone can develop PCS after a concussion. After an auto accident or sports injury, everyday people may need upper cervical chiropractic treatment to treat or prevent PCS.

What are the risk factors for PCS?

Why do some people develop PCS after a concussion, yet others do not? There is no definitive answer, but science has given us clues.

Risk factors for developing PCS include:

What are the symptoms of PCS? 

  1. Headache
  2. Migraine
  3. Dizziness
  4. Fatigue
  5. Irritability
  6. Sleep disturbances
  7. Difficulty concentrating
  8. Memory problems
  9. Problems tolerating stress
  10. Problems tolerating alcohol
  11. Vertigo
  12. Personality changes
  13. Vision problems
  14. Depression
  15. Apathy

  17. Noise sensitivity
  18. Chronic pain

How do you treat PCS?

At Denver Upper Cervical Chiropractic, our team proudly uses high-quality chiropractic services to treat the root cause of post-concussion syndrome: upper cervical spinal misalignment.

Upper cervical misalignment causes post-injury headaches and can make your concussion symptoms last longer than the usual recovery time. Our chiropractic center provides chiropractic treatment that aligns the upper cervical spine, which can resolve PCS.

Dr. Ty Carzoli and his team at this chiropractic clinic prescribe non-contact aerobic exercise physical therapy in conjunction with chiropractic care. It seems counterintuitive, but research shows that exercise is a promising therapy for PCS.

Chiropractic offices aren’t just for neck pain or lower back pain management. Most chiropractors emphasize overall health and wellness — one reason they succeed where conventional healthcare may fail. Upper cervical chiropractic care is shown with peer-reviewed research to treat PCS.

Leslie Goodman

I absolutely LOVE going to Denver Upper Cervical Chiropractic. Dr. Ty knows his stuff and I've never felt better. His style of chiropractic care has improved my sleeping, mood, and fitness capacity. Plus, they are really great at making me feel appreciated. See super sweet picture from my birthday. I would HIGHLY recommend giving them a try, but only if you really want to improve how you feel.

Carla Streff

Overall, I didn’t necessarily feel that I had any particular issues other than a prior shoulder injury that slightly bothered me when I exercised with a heavy set of weights. I felt fairly energetic due to the typical routine of exercise and eating a well balanced healthy diet. The idea for my treatment was to be more proactive about my long term health and ensure that I was in proper alignment.
After my initial consultation, I found out my body was out of alignment more than I felt. I did not feel much different after the first few adjustments; however, what I did not realize until a few weeks in is that I had been waking up prior to treatment with kind of a groggy kind of feeling. After years of waking up like this I assumed this was just the norm. I now have been waking up with little fatigue and grogginess (even with a 10 month old baby) and a new burst of revitalization even if I did not get a full 8 hours of sleep. The feeling of being excited the day before a trip has been occurring on the standard day getting up for work. My workouts have also seen an improvement with the new improved energy levels as well as the standard weight I typically lift went up with little efforts.
Dr. Ty is extremely knowledgeable about what he does and would not think about using anyone else for my care. I love walking into the awesome environment that Dr. Ty has established and the overall care that comes from the visits. Dr. Ty and his fantastic staff has an amazing energy that I very much look forward to when visiting the office!
Even if you think that you have a good alignment, you should be sure to visit Dr. Ty for a great proactive health care plan!
